CafePenguicon at ConClave
For me, one of the best things about the weekend at the ConClave science fiction and fantasy convention, was that I was approached by many volunteers with ideas for a lot of exciting Penguicon programming.
Two things I can tell you about are a Paint & Take and a Game Mini Sculpting Workshop. These are classes that cost a couple of bucks to cover supplies, and let you work on a gaming mini with a qualified instructor. You then can take the mini home.
I can also tell you we are going to have two dances at Penguicon this year, one on Friday with DJ Brick, and one on Saturday with DJ Tommytooney.
The Cafe Penguicon room party was fun! I made espresso drinks as usual. This year our ConChair, John Guest, is giving each person who pre-registers at Cafe Penguicon a keychain in the shape of Tux the Penguin, with Penguicon 5.0 printed on the belly. I thought they would be 2-D plastic cutouts, but they're fully 3-D sculptures in foam rubber, and are really awesome! I'm using mine to hold my flash media.
